I have just gotten my results and I am a bit disheartened as I wanted to do biology but I have not passed the minimum grade but the other choices I wanted to do was psychology sociology law and business but I am uncertain if these subjects are the right one for me so I wanted some advice.
I have went to bridging week and I have been to psychology, sociology and law but not business so I wanted to ask if anyone could tell me how these subjects are like to give me a further overview of which subjects I would choose out of the 4 choices as I am only allowed to choose 3 thank you .

They are all samey and likely to lead to the same sort of course options. Several degrees dont specify any particular subjects and they just want grades.
Once you understand what course or career you want then it is easier to choose the qualifications you need to get you there.

If in doubt do the subjects you enjoy the most and you will get the best grades for. that will make it more likely to get into better unis.

You can also read the specifications to see which each course is about plus go to any intro days. Talk to the teachers and current students.

Have a read and play with these on how to pick A levels and what courses they might make available.

Which course?
